Many areas of Manchester have undergone regeneration or there are proposals to begin such schemes in the near future. One such place is Gorton. This suburb of Manchester has grown in popularity in recent years. If you are considering a property purchase, or perhaps are considering selling your home, our Conveyancing Solicitors in Gorton have the time, expertise and knowledge to assist you.


Gorton is situated to the south east of Manchester city centre and is bordered by Levenshulme. Reddish and Denton to the South and Ardwick and Openshaw to the North. Gorton is perhaps most famous in the sporting world as the original official birthplace of Manchester City Football Club. When it comes to housing and a residential area, Gorton once had a poor reputation, thanks in part of being the filming location for the television series Shameless. Now this image has been shaken off due to a huge regeneration project by Manchester City Council.

Gorton has a huge appeal due to its close proximity to Manchester City Centre. Property prices are low and the rental demand in the area is high meaning it is a great place to invest in property. Regeneration schemes in the area have meant that the reputation of Gorton has changed for the better and it is now a popular place to purchase especially those looking to take their first step onto the property ladder. Young professionals find much better value for money than in the city centre itself and the great transport links mean that commuting to work or university is easy to achieve.

Whilst being popular amongst sporting and television enthusiasts, Gorton is also well known for railway enthusiasts as it played a central role in the locomotive industry in both the 19 th and 20 th centuries. Gorton is also home to the Belle Vue Speedway Stadium. Another famous landmark in the area is Gorton Monastery, which dates back to the 19 th century, was home to many Franciscan Monks and is constructed in the infamous High Victorian Gothic style.


It is common knowledge that buying and selling houses is considered one of the most stressful things anyone can experience. This is especially so if moving over a distance, with small children and pets or where it involves a change in occupation or schooling. It is widely accepted when moving house there is disruption and needs to be well organised. You will need to communicate with a number of different people working together to coordinate the process. Depending on any chain involved and how long that chain is, you will need to communicate with the buyers, sellers, estate agents, mortgage and financial advisors and brokers, mortgage lenders, solicitors, conveyancers and their assistance all when dealing with the practical, legal and financial aspects of buying a house. As you get closer to a move date, you will need to consider practical aspects of living in the property such as utility provision, surveying, removal firms, local councils and schools. A good conveyancing solicitor with sound knowledge and experience can help make this process a lot smoother. It is therefore important to take the time to find the right conveyancer for you.
